Well it’s almost here. The Celebration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I love Christmas. It’s awesome to celebrate Jesus for whatever reason, and it’s nice that people give me stuff and I in turn give them stuff. It’s fun.
I don’t really like to think about Christmas until the week of becuase there is so much hype and lame-ness that just drive me nuts. I used to work at a Drug Store and they would play christmas music hours on end the day after thanksgiving. And Stocking all the tacky decorations was incredibly frustrating, there was no Jesus, Lots of Santas and reindeers but no Jesus. So it kind of soured me on Christmas.
So Whenever I hear “Frosty the Snowman” or “Here Comes Santa Claus” my skin begins to crawl. Kathy calls me Scrooge and Grinch, but I know that I’m not, I just want to play down the hype.
But this Christmas is really special becuase it’s our first Christmas with Judah. So we are going to do a living nativity on christmas eve in our front lawn and Judah is going to play Baby Jesus. Just kidding. I’m playing baby Jesus.
But Christmas is four days away and the festivities really start tomorrow, with our Christmas Party. Then Saturday we are going to go to Kathy’s Grandma’s house, then on Sunday Church in the Morning, Lunch at Kathy’s Parents, Gifts, Christmas Eve Service, Back to Kathy’s Parents, Home. Monday Christmas at my parents house, and I’m sure we will run back and forth between the families. So it’s going to be a busy weekend for us.
But I’m excited about Christmas and I hope you are too!
